Happy Birthday Stella!!!!!

Not only is today Stella’s Birthday, but it also looks like with a little luck….she could reach a record of 20,000 hits to her little blog!!!!  TWENTY THOUSAND hits!!! It was only at the end of January that she had reached 9,008 hits……

Sadly, the clip of Sally Field’s 1985 Oscar Acceptance speech is hard to find… is a link to the short version…–Best-Leading-Actress-•-Sally-Field

Back to the Birthday Schnoodle……..

As you saw in yesterday’s blog….Stella has some pretty high hopes for today.    More on the festivities later…..

For now enjoy a cute little video of the Birthday Girl taken yesterday……as said before….she will do practically anything for one of the biscuits made by her Southern Grandmother….and here’s the proof…

Happy Birthday Stella!!!!!!!!!

Big slurpy, sloppy kisses from the Birthday Schnoodle!!!

Tomorrow is a big, big day……

A certain little fluffy, four legged somebody is going to be TWO YEARS OLD!!!!!

"That's right Mama...TWO...I want presents, pony rides, a bouncy house, a petting zoo, a magician, frosty crack, a ride to and from the dog park in a stretch limo, more presents, a big party with all of my friends, and a new collar with diamonds!"


/Apparently, Stella has been watching “My Super Sweet 16” on MTV while Mama and Papa are at work.

Spa Day for the Schnoodle!

A certain little someone…..was in need of a little grooming last weekend.

"I don't want a bath Mama."

Mama took Stella to Fetch  (  to look at a product she had seen online….it’s a great store here in Portland with lots of toys, food, treats, collars…..everything your dog could want….and Stella does like to be able to go into stores for herself to see things.

Mama wanted to check out the Happy Tails Canine Dog Spa (  items and this is the only shop in town that carries them.    We’ve tried a sample size of their Bubbles ‘n  Beads shampoo ( ) and loved it!!  In particular, Mama was looking for the Shimmering Mist!!  The very nice woman behind the counter said she uses it on her dog and it makes her smell like a cupcake…..SOLD!

I caught the Schnoodle mid-nap upstairs in her room….and the grooming began….

"What's that Mama?"

You have to love something that adds "Bling and Brightness" and smells like cupcakes...

So you spray it on…..I gave her a good rub down and a brushing to work it into her hair….the Schnoodle does love a good rub down and brushing….

And look....she sparkles like a Cullen!!!

She's all smooth and tangle free....she sparkles...AND yes, smells like a cupcake.

Mama sparkled too...but I washed mine off....

Then we loaded Stella into the car and took her for a ride to one of her other favorite places in town…..

"The Dog Park? Are we going to the Dog Park?"

Nope Stella, Planet Dog where the very nice groomer cut Stella's nails. Not an easy feat when your squirmy dog has black hair and black nails. They do an excellent job here!!

She couldn't get back to the car fast enough....

...and went straight upstairs to her room for a nap.
